Introducing Speaker: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome back Vic Gundotra.
Vic Gundotra: Wow! Good morning, everybody. This place is packed. I’m surprised so many of you made it back after that great party last night.
You know, let me begin by just thanking you guys for your support. Yesterday was an epic day for Google I/O. It was quite an amazing day. And just thank you for being part of that. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
And I hope you’re enjoying your Android development kits. Yes?
All right. You know, that party last night, thank you for many of you who downloaded the new version of Google+ for Android and then accepted my invitation. We had over 2600 of you do that. And of those 2600 people, over 1,000 people turned on Party Mode and contributed over 13,700 photographs from last night’s concert.
When was the last time you went to an event and the next day had that many photos automatically organized and chronological. I have to apologize. This is not Glass that’s distracting me. Ever since yesterday, I’ve developed just this nervous TIC. I am just always wondering, where is Sergey? I’m not sure if he’s in the building, if he’s above the building.
As you probably know, he’s going to do some fun stuff again today. I hope you’ve been following his Google+ posts. But I think you’re likely to see some pretty exciting stuff.
With that, let’s get started with Day 2 keynote.
I think you’re going to be really excited about what you’re going to see here. That’s going to be handled by our senior vice president of Chrome and apps, and my friend, Sundar Pichai. Sundar?
Sundar Pichai: Thank you. Welcome to Day 2 of Google I/O keynote. It’s very exciting to be here. None of what I have planned involved jumping from an airplane, doing anything on top of Moscone or riding onto the stage. But we nevertheless have lots of exciting stuff ahead. In fact, we’ve had a few exciting months. But a few months ago, we launched Chrome for Android, which, hopefully, all of you can use on your brand-new Nexus 7.
